Trials in communication outcome in the medical interview.
This reference list has been submitted by Dr Simon Griffin, senior lecturer in the Dept of General Practice and Primary Care Research, University of Cambridge.s:Simonís presentation mainly covered the trials that have been published on outcome following a communication skills intervention. The good news is that the research that has already published is (mostly) still valid to quote, but good randomised trials still need to be done and repeated, not only on C/S skills interventions, but also teaching methods related to the medical interview.
